  • Sinister Yogisby David Gordon White

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 25.00

    Since the 1960s, yoga has become a billion-dollar industry in the West, attracting housewives and hipsters, New Agers and the old-aged. But our modern conception of yoga derives much from nineteenth-century European spirituality, and the true story of yoga?s origins in South Asia is far richer, stranger, and more entertaining than most of us realize.... more...

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 39.00

    In November 2000, when the now-infamous "butterfly ballot" confused crucial Florida voters during a hotly contested presidential race, the importance of well-designed ballots to a functioning democracy caught the nation's attention.

    Cycling has experienced a renaissance in the United States, as cities around the country promote the bicycle as an alternative means of transportation.

  • Masters of Uncertaintyby Phaedra Daipha

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    Though we commonly make them the butt of our jokes, weather forecasters are in fact exceptionally good at managing uncertainty. They consistently do a better job calibrating their performance than stockbrokers, physicians, or other decision-making experts precisely because they receive feedback on their decisions in near real time. Following forecasters... more...

  • Planning Matterby Robert A. Beauregard

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    City and regional planners talk constantly about the things of the world?from highway interchanges and retention ponds to zoning documents and conference rooms?yet most seem to have a poor understanding of the materiality of the world in which they?re immersed. Too often planners treat built forms, weather patterns, plants, animals, or regulatory... more...

  • Planters, Merchants, and Slavesby Trevor Burnard

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 36.00

    As with any enterprise involving violence and lots of money, running a plantation in early British America was a serious and brutal enterprise. Beyond resources and weapons, a plantation required a significant force of cruel and rapacious men?men who, as Trevor Burnard sees it, lacked any better options for making money. In the contentious Planters,... more...
